As the weather changes and it starts to get colder in the winter months, you may notice changes in your skin and complexion. The body adapts to each season, from harsh winds to sweaty days and our skin is constantly fighting to retain moisture, stay healthy and fight bacteria. But no matter what the time of year it is, textured skin can be a problem for a lot of people, and it is about time that we learn to embrace it.
Textured skin refers to the condition that the surface of your skin is in. It is usually rough, bumpy skin that makes the face look uneven. For example, blemishes, acne, scaring, etc. Whilst textured skin does not mean you are unhealthy, it can impact someone’s self-confidence. There are multiple causes for textured skin; however, the most common cause is a buildup of dead skin cells. Others include:
- Sun damage
- Lack of collagen production
- Acne scarring
Social media has created a stigma against textured skin, portraying it as a problem that needs fixing. But textured skin is normal. Everyone has pores, spots, dark circles, peach fuzz, etc. Most of the time, textured skin is not a concern, only for cosmetic reasons. We can normalise textured skin and influence everyone to accept our imperfections. No one is airbrushed or perfect, so it is completely normal to have imperfections and some visible texture as it is our natural beauty. We need to remind ourselves that:
- Beauty is not only skin deep
- Our skin is our largest organ, and we should embrace and celebrate it
- The condition our skin is in can reflect our health
- Your imperfections are what makes you who you are
- When you love yourself, no one can convince you otherwise
Here are our best tips, designed for those who battle with self-confidence with their textured skin, to help you feel your best all year round.
Beauty Is Not Only Skin Deep
What you look like on the outside, does not determine what kind of person you are. Nor is it something you buy and apply in the morning. Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. Big, small, tall, short and all the in between. It is inclusive.
Selfishness and cruelty can make the most beautiful person seem ugly. Confident skin is not poreless and smooth. It has all your bumps and blemishes that makes you, you. It is a state of mind that comes from within.
Our Skin Is Our Largest Organ & We Should Embrace It
Your skin protects you. That is, it’s job.
It is the largest organ in the body and performs vital roles that are needed for our health. Without it, you would not be protected from germs or bacteria, your body temperature would not regulate properly, and your immune system would not be as efficient.
The Condition Our Skin Is In Can Reflect Our Health
The skin gives a massive indication to what is happening in your body. It mirrors what is going on internally and reflects externally.
